Pectin is a dietary fiber and a complex group of polysaccharides in which D-galacturonic acid is a principal constituent. Pectin is highly water-soluble and is almost completely metabolized by colonic bacteria.
Because it’s a soluble fiber, this pectin easily absorbs water, forming a gel-like consistency. Source Naturals Modified Citrus Pectin provides the same form of modified pectin shown in research to support cellular immune health.
Pectin has been used to help:
- lower high cholesterol by binding to bile acids in the small intestine
- lower blood pressure and reduce chance of heart disease by blocking the formation of blood clots
- solidify diarrhea or soften hard stool due to constipation by rebalancing gut bacteria
- reduce hunger and helps with weight loss by stimulating the release of the hormone GLP-1
- reduce vomiting and acid reflux
- reduce radiation damage by limiting radioactive elements
- reduce lead poisoning
- detox your system gently
It has also been used for diabetes and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The galactosyl fractions found in modified pectin are believed to be responsible for its beneficial properties. These molecules appear to bind to and block galectin-3, a lectin on the surface of many cells that contributes to the movement of cells within the body. These lectin-binding properties are thought to help promote overall balanced health.
